Kapil announced the news of Ginni's pregnancy in an interview with Mumbai Mirror earlier this year. He told the publication: "I just want to take care of my wife and be by her side for now. We are obviously very excited as it's our first kid but my mother is the most excited. She has been waiting for this moment for years now. We are just praying for Ginni and the baby's health."
Kapil added that it's a "happy time" for the family: "There is no prep because we don't know if it would be a boy or girl. It's a happy time for the family and everybody is looking forward to welcome the new member."
Though Kapil and Ginni knew each other from their college days, things did not work out then as their families were conservative, and they came from different social statuses. However, when she supported him through his darkest phase in 2017, he knew that she was the one for him.
